    Does anyone know of any golf games - be it UK or US import only where you can play at Augusta National, home of the Masters!?

    I don't know of any such games.

    But I am very sure they don't exist.

    This is because in the past Augusta National have been quite selective in how their course / club / tournament is marketed, hence the reason the Masters is still on BBC and not SKY who could, I'm sure, easily outbid BBC. And until recently (last couple of years?) they were so protective they would not allow live coverage of the final day until a certain time / part of the course (eg leaders reach 8th hole). But this year there was a lot more live coverage, from quite early on in the round.

    So anyway, rambling over, don't bet on it - if it could be done someone would DEFINITELY have put Augusta into a golf game by now.

    However I may yet be proved completely wrong!

    Cheers!

    as Kazuya Mishima says the augusta national gold committee are very protective about the masters golf course, so they may think it is demeening (sp?) to have it represented on a "computer game".

    Not console, but there are several versions of Augusta National for Links on the PC - there is a built in course designer that people have used to create the course.
